boring technical note
Bezeq, the Israeli telco, is being stupid and unhelpful in getting us the ADSL modem. We've been using gaal's modem, but since he came back (happily!), we must return it before he notices we stole it.

I'll be trying to get the modem ASAP, but as it is, it may mean less net reachability in the coming few days. Moose moose.

Current Mood: peaceful
Current Music: Birkat Am (Bialik) -- sung by some men's choir

Strangely enough, I've been getting mixed results from the Bezeq store.
While my parents have been getting the cold shoulder from them, either getting ignored or sent back to the ISP for details about their ADSL modem, my grandmother simply came over, was given one, and went home. Situation is unclear.

From what i gather they (Nezeq) are back to supplying alcatel modems. If this is true, my advice is not to take any of the usb crap they supply and go for this one. It's like rock solid. Can stay connected for years [I know some people who DID stay connected for years with that, so it's not an exaggeration]. And yeah, you can tweak it to work as a router.

We had no intention to take a USB modem (those did not run out).

Thanks.
